  • *Compared to intact cow’s milk protein formulas
  • † For healthy infants who are not exclusively breastfed and who have a family history of allergy, feeding a 100% whey protein partially hydrolyzed infant formula {like Gerber Good Start} from birth up to 4 months of age instead of a formula made with intact cow’s milk proteins may reduce the risk of developing atopic dermatitis* throughout the first year of life. The scientific evidence for this is limited and not all babies may benefit.
  • Partially hydrolyzed formulas should not be fed to infants who are allergic to milk or to infants with existing milk allergy symptoms. If you suspect a baby is allergic to milk, or if a baby is on a special formula for the treatment of allergy, their care and feeding choices should be under a doctor’s supervision.     
  • *the most common allergic disease of infancy
  • **Probiotic found in Gerber® Good Start® Gentle powder formula only.
  • ^Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are a group of prebiotics found in human milk, and 2'-FL is the most abundant found in breastmilk. The 2’-FL HMO in Gerber® Good Start® is structurally identical to that in breastmilk.
